Brewed in Strasbourg for Alken-Maes, distribution unclear. Spiced.

Grimbergen Blanche is a true wheat beer in the most traditional sense. The pale yellow Blanche is cloudy, just as you would expect from a wheat beer. Notes of citrus and light carbonation add character to the creamy palate and make Blanche an excellent thirst quencher.

Kinz (3786) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - NOV 23, 2012
Bottle at the hotel restaurant with my dinner of duck confit in Paris. Sounds more exotic than it really was. Pours a medium to light gold, nice head. Aroma is wheat and an almost lime note. Flavor is a close match - a good bit of coriander, and instead of the typical orange peel notes, something that comes off more like lime or bergamot. Refreshing, and surprisingly enjoyable. Liked this one.

Oiolosse (126) - Granada, SPAIN - MAY 22, 2017
Manchas brumosas y opacas de color amarillo pálido con cabeza blanca. Se asienta como una fina capa de espuma alrededor del borde del cristal. El aroma es a cítricos y un poco picante. Cilantro. Carbonatación fuerte y paladar acuoso. El sabor es cítrico artificial y bastante acuoso por cierto. Muy ligera amargura. El regusto es dulce limonada y bayas amargas - un poco sintético. No es la witbier más impresionante.

Ganske udmærket witbier. En rigtig sommerøl nydt på teressen. Dejlig frisk, men savner nogle markante smags nuancer.

VDuquerroux (1599) - Airvault, Haut-Poitou, FRANCE - MAY 8, 2017
Bottle, 25cL. Home. Kindly given by my dad. A pale yellow opaque beer with a medium white head ; medium retention ; ok lacing. Citrus, orange, herb, clove. Light to medium sweet and spicy, dry bitter note. Light body, thin texture, average to soft carbonation, spicy dry refreshing finish. Overall, correct witbier; too spicy but definitely drinkable ; thirst-quencher.

DraftDodger (1408) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAY 5, 2017
Copenhagen 5/5 2017. 75 cl bottle from Fakta. Usal Grimbergen design with a Phoenix in light blue. Pours hazy and opaque pale yellow with white head. Settles as thin patchy layer of foam around the rim of the glass. Aroma is sourish citrus and a little bit spicy. Coriander. Lemonadelike. Strong carbonation and watery palate. Flavor is artificial citrus and quite watery by the way. Very light bitterness. Aftertaste is sweet lemonade and sour berries - a bit synthetic. Not the most impressive Wit.

tricksta_p (4329) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - APR 30, 2017
Bottle from a local AH. Aroma is wheat, shitloads of coriander, floral notes, peppery yeast, some citrus, perfumed and bubblegum notes. Flavour is sweet and light bitter. Body is medium. Hardly terrible but I like my Wit less sweet, coriander and floral level are a bit much.

0,33l Flasche. Hellgelbes Bier mit schöner Schaumkrone. Malziger Geruch, mir fehlt das Citrusaroma! Auch im Geschmack überwiegt das malzige. Ausbaufähig!
